An endowment established in 1983 through the generosity of Nancy and Robin Hanes supports the Art Department’s Visiting Artist  Series. This important program brings both established and emerging artists to campus to discuss their work in public lectures and to offer individual critiques to our M.F.A. students.  The Hanes Visiting Artist series greatly enriches both our academic programs and our outreach to the wider community.  All lectures are free and open to the public.
